Hi, I’m Amy, founder of Maker Mama. With a focus on crafting (including crochet, knitting, sewing, and more) and thrifty living, my aim is to motivate readers to create and make meaning with their own two hands. I take pride in the hard work and dedication I’ve put into my blog and feel that it shows through my content, tutorials and photography.

Most Maker Mama readers are women with families, who are not only looking to make meaning through crafting, but are also important decision-makers in their homes.

As of August 2013, Maker Mama averages over 23,400 page views a month and is steadily growing.

Here at Maker Mama I hope to inspire women to find their own creative selves–whether that means picking up a needle and thread, hunting for thrifted treasures, taking great photos, or getting their hands dirty in the garden, there’s something for everyone.

If you feel that you’re a good fit for Maker Mama readers and wish to sponsor the blog, please email me at makermama[at]gmail[dot]com.
